If you want your children to thrive, you've come to the right place.

Thank you for your interest in Shanghai American School. 

At SAS Admissions, we are deeply committed to student success – both inside and outside of the classroom – and we can’t wait to meet students who would thrive here. And the enthusiasm is often returned:  a high schooler who had blossomed through newfound friends, academic challenges, and the abundance of opportunities, stopped by simply to say, “Thank you for the chance to come to SAS.” 

We invite you to learn about our school and campuses by signing up for an upcoming virtual event here

We are currently accepting applications for the 23/24 school year.

Our door is open – we’re here for you to get to know us. Although the admission season for the 22/23 school year remains open, seating is very limited across all grade levels on both campuses. If you would like additional information on seat availability, please contact our admissions office directly.


– Alice Li-Arndt, Director of Admissions + Enrollment
